Almost 200 former players, supporters and administrators have met the early registration deadline to attend the Beechwood Football Club's 100 year reunion of competition in the Hastings League.

The event is in June.

The cracking start to the shout out to attend the reunion has buoyed organisers who are expecting further registrations to come prior to the event.

A spokesperson for the organising committee says a range of events and activities have been planned for the reunion.

"Due to the deadline for ordering shirts for the weekend, registrations were encouraged to be in by end of March and it is pleasing to see almost 200 people have decided to take up the early registration option," the spokesperson said.

"However, it is not to late to register for the event.

"The weekend includes lots of social time along with a game against Comboyne Tigers."

Some of the events include, a Friday night meet and greet at the Beechwood Hotel, Saturday morning breakfast at the football ground, a game against Comboyne, a dinner at the Wauchope RSL on Saturday night, as well as a farewell breakfast at the ground on Sunday morning.

The $100 registration covers entry to all the events and partners are encouraged to participate.

"However, if your partner would like to attend the dinner with you it is an extra $30," the spokesperson said.

"Some reunion shirts will be on sale over the weekend or you will have an opportunity to order one if you have missed the March deadline.

"Buses will be running from Wauchope on Saturday."

Registration forms are available from Coppy's Butcher Block in Wauchope and Port, Rock's Motorcycles, M and S Print or online on the Beechwood Football Club Facebook page.
